Kia has announced pricing for its all-electric, supercar-rivalling EV6 GT that will start from $99,590 before on-road costs
Kia has boosted the outputs of the dual-motor electric powertrain significantly to 430kW/740Nm.
That’s a 191kW/135Nm boost over the next most powerful EV6 model, the all-wheel-drive GT-Line.
To compare, the EV6 GT produces only 19kW less power than the current Lamborghini Huracan Evo in rear-wheel-drive guise and costs less than one-third the value of the raging bull.
Kia Australia says the EV6 GT flagship is set to arrive in Australian dealerships within the coming weeks.
Breaking down the powertrain of the new EV6 GT, the front motor on the vehicle produces 160kW of power, while the rear motor makes 270kW of power. The new flagship GT variant uses a 77.4kWh battery pack to provide energy to the motors.
Kia claims the new EV6 GT is capable of sprinting to 100km/h in 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of 260km/h.
Driving range for the GT is a claimed 424km (WLTP) despite having considerably more performance than the rest of the range.
But it isn’t just the powertrain that is built for performance. The Kia EV6 GT also has four-piston green front brake callipers with 380mm ventilated front discs at the front and 360mm ventilated rear discs.
Also standard on the GT are Australian-tuned electronically-controlled dampers, an electronic limited-slip differential and 21-inch alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4s tyres.
The EV6 will be available in Australia with five colours: Runway Red, Snow White Pearl, Aurora Black Pearl, Yacht Blue and Moonscape.
